Mboro, however, is relentless in his mission to tarnish Bushiri’s name. A clip of him calling Bushiri a fraudster surfaced. In the clip uploaded to a parody Twitter account, @AdvoBarryRoux, Mboro can be heard saying that he is not xenophobic.

He also clarified that Bushiri should go home to Malawi to fetch the money he allegedly stole from South Africans. A very agitated Mboro is heard calling Bushiri a fraudster, a thief and a liar.

He also mentions meeting with the National Council of Churches to discuss his apparent xenophobia. He says they requested no media be present.
